Sam is an accommodating helpful host who was on the spot for us when we arrived and gave us lots of info and advice for our stay. The place is as advertised, in a great neighbourhood and was a perfect space for us, as a family of four with good sleeping arrangements and reasonable space to hang out.
Great location, great appartment. Sam is a great host as well and took care of all in perfect manner.
Great host, great location. Apartment was exactly as shown in the photos and Sam was a fabulous host -- always available by text and super flexible with check in/out times. Perfect space for 3-4 people. Would definitely return next time we're in NYC.
Sam's place is great and it made our NYC experience absolutely incredible. The location is central and convenient and the neighborhood is great. Everything was well prepared and Sam and his girlfriend did everything to accommodate us (towels, wifi access, cable TV...), they even offered us to use their fridge if needed! Will definitely recommend for friends and family.
My experience was amazing. I and my girlfriend stayed for 10 days in the apartment. Sam was very helpful from the first contact and helped us in all questions and clarifications. The location is very good, near the subway and very good neighborhood. I really suggest the place.
The apartment was perfect! thx Sam.
It was very good to stay at Sam's place.
The location is very good, because you're right in the middle of town - if you want to go downtown it's close, if you decide to vistit uptown it's also nearby.
The apartment it's cosy; we went there in the winter, and the heating worked perfectly. It has a very fast Wi-Fi, television and all the stuff to use when you're going to cook, clean or use the bathroom: Sam leaves the right things for you.
He also furnishes the bedding and towels.
He's is a very kind person - so it seems that you're dealing with a friend, but he remains professional.
Thank you, Sam, for everything! And, new guests, enjoy your trip (for sure he's gonna help you)!
Meeting Sam was the best introduction to New York. He was super friendly and helpful, and clearly passionate about sharing his love for his city! The apartment was just what we'd expected, and it was great to get all his local knowledge about the neighbourhood. Our stay couldn't have been better.
Sam and Kelly were very nice and hospitable. Sam kept in contact with me over text very frequently. They were flexible with us to arrive a bit early and leave our stuff while the other guests were there. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Sam but did meet his GF and she was very friendly and helpful. The location and apartment is decent and has the bare essentials you need. It is no Hilton but if that doesn't bother you then u will be fine. We just needed a place to crash for one night since we were just driving through and so it did the job.
Sam is very welcoming and accommodating. We appreciated his being available for later in the day check in and also allowing us to leave our bags in the apt for a bit later check out mid afternoon on day we left.
The apt is small for 4 persons, especially w the futon made up as a bed, but we all slept comfortably. Sheets soft & clean. Kitchen had coffee & otherwise served its purpose (tho need to finagle some cords to get microwave working.) SMALL bathroom w enough towels, & plenty of HOT water.. be careful as Sam suggests & check before entering.. it gets HOT.
Great location! easy commute to anywhere in NYC & wonderful basic & eclectic food/activity choices w/in blocks of the apt. Shows Blue Man Group & STOMP up the street, and we loved Jebon Sushi & Noodle House on St Marks Place, also a short walk away.
Basically a Spartan but clean, comfortable place w easy access and an amiable host at a very reasonable price.
I recently had the pleasure of hosting Sam and his girlfriend at my flat in Miami Beach. They were the ideal guest. Communicated thoroughly and clearly prior to arrival. Checked in as reported and obeyed all my stated house rules. Left the apartment in perfect condition. I would host them again at anytime.
Great guest, very friendly, good communication. I would gladly recommend him.
Sam and Kelly were terrific. Sam is an experienced airbnb host and knows just what a host and a guest should do to make the best of their stay. I enjoyed talking "hosting" with him. Great conversationalist, and also perfectly respectful of the space and those around him. So very polite. They left the space in perfect order. I would love to see Sam and Kelly back at my home.
Sam was an outstanding guest, and I would highly recommend to any host sorry we did not get to meet, hope you enjoyed your stay

Sam stayed here for a night, he was a great guest to have, no problems of any kind, nice to speak to and be with, considerate and quiet. I'd recommend him to any host
Sam & Kelly were fantastic guests. Very easy to interact with, open, and friendly. Communication beforehand was excellent, and we enjoyed their presence once they were here. They left the room in perfect condition, and we would happily welcome them back.
It was a pleasure to host Sam and his girlfriend on our sailboat. We had good time sharing our hosting experiences . They left the boat very clean and they are welcome back anytime.
Sam was a nice guest.
Great guests, A+. Easy to communicate with, friendly, and clean; wouldn't hesitate to have Sam again.
This stay followed suit with their last - Sam and Kelly are WONDERFUL guests, but this time it was awesome to have the opportunity to finally meet them! They are a delightful couple, friendly, positive and easy going. We enjoyed and appreciate having had the opportunity to host them twice, and our door remains open should they ever want to stay again. Thanks you guys!
Everywhere you go in NYC, people know Sam. Why? Because he is awesome! Sam is always thinking of others, is kind, and makes everything fun. He is the type of person who cares about detail, and whatever you need you can feel comfortable asking him. Also, if you are thinking if staying in NYC, downtown is much better than midtown or uptown! Enjoy the East Village, and enjoy the best host around...Sam!
Sam and I have worked together on a number of video shoots. Some where I hired him to help me out - others where he hired me. Sam is always a consummate professional and has become a dear friend over the years. He's kind, smart, and reliable. Also, he's extremely passionate about music - a field we'll always share a love for. Sam is truly a great guy and one would be honored to cross paths with him.
Extremely responsible and friendly human being. Super great guy, beloved member of New York musician's community. We all love Sam and you will too!
Sam is a conscientious host and one of the friendliest people I know. He goes out of his way to help acquaintances, which is a great quality in a bnb host. His apartment is in my favorite neighborhood in the city and is surrounded by some of my favorite restaurants and bars.
Sam was a fantastic host. He made myself and my friend Georgia feel incredibly welcome and at home. Apart from being in a fabulous area of New York, he has a fabulous taste in music and a really interesting job! Stay with him!
As Sam's girlfriend, I spend a significant amount of time at the apartment, and can say that we both try to make it as comfortable for the guests as possible. Aside from providing basics like clean towels and linens, free wireless, and cable tv, Sam makes sure the fridge and pantry are stocked in case guests want to help themselves (and yes, beer is included... but we stick mostly to Blue Moon)! As an added bonus, Sam is a native new yorker who works in sports and local music so he always knows what's going on in the city and can tell you all the cool places to hang out :)
